Terrazzo is a composite of a potential variety of aggregate materials that uses a polymeric or cementitious binding agent used to create interior and exterior flooring surface solutions. The aggregate materials consist of marble, quartz, granite, glass or other suitable chips, mixed with a matrix (binder). The Terrazzo mixture is then poured, cured, ground and polished to a uniformly finished surface.
To answer the question "What is the difference between terrazzo and rustic terrazzo?" the answer is quite simple. "Rustic" refers to the rough texture of the finished aggregate surface of the terrazzo. Rustic terrazzo's textured surface provides a slip resistant finish for best traction in wet or icy outdoor environments. Typically exterior applications include sidewalks, walkways, stairs, and entry ways. Traditional Terrazzo flooring in contrast is polished to the sheen of your choice ranging from matte to high gloss. Both terrazzo and rustic terrazzo are highly customizable and allow for nearly any colors or designs you can imagine. Terrazzo is a luxurious way to accent your facility that is both easy to maintain and extreamly durable. See a sampling of what is possible with Terrazzo flooring by Allegheny Installations.
